For as long as I can remember, there has been a huge tree swing up at my grandpa’s cabin. It’s always been the very first thing that I ever wanted to do when we’d pull up. I can remember LOVING it. I think there were a total of 3 or maybe 4 different swings over the years. The most recent one has seen many summers! In fact, both the trees that hold the swing are now dead from bark beetle (so sad!) anyway… not sure how long the platform has been gone, but it was of course the first thing I noticed when we came back this summer- so a couple of weeks ago, I convinced (didn’t take much) Eric, Cam and Clark to come up with a plan for a new platform. They kinda took it to the ‘nth’ degree, and decided to cement it in and get totally serious!
So, fast forward to today, we only had the day at the cabin- Cam and Eric hauled up all the necessary tools, and what seemed like miles of extension cords! It didn’t take too long before the whole thing was done, and holy COW the kids were launching off with no fear what-so-ever!! I got up there, and as if I was 13 again, it totally scared me to death, and was a HUGE thrill! SO fuN! the kids probably each went off the platform 100 times!
Good times, for SURE!
